by the government. on the other hand, 9/11 survivors and those impacted by hurricane andrew, they received endless government assistance. watch this. >> i want to give you one example because this really steams me up. this isn't in the prepared remarks...: down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get... reconstruction money from the federal government, called the stafford act. basically tsays, when you get federal money, have to give a 10% match, the local government's got to come up with 10%. every $10 the federal government comes up with, the local government's got to give a dollar. now, here's the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city...: they waived the stafford act, said, this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation! we don't expect to you come up with the money. here! here's the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for to you scrat
able to articulate what many of us have been desiring. a big government agenda, and policies of barack obama. do we have to repeat those? can ge we go into another direction? rely on those principle that's built up this country into the greatest nation on earth. can we go back to that direction now? mitt romney gave us a reason why now, we know we have a clear choice. the contrast made tonight. >> sean: i found the president stammering and on defense, mitt romney on offense. one moment interesting to me is when president obama couldn't explain his own debt. very a plan to reduce the deficit by $4 tril bin but given a $6 trillion in new debt. i wasn't sure that worked well for him. >> if you noticed mitt romney able to point out many things like that. promise that's barack obama had made for instance he said as a candidate he would cut the deficit in half and more than doubled the did he have it and added trillions to our already-mind boggling debt drowning this country. mitt romney able to point out many of the points many of us in the audience have been longing to hear barack obama be

, not unlike greece, spain, europe in general. it seems when people are given the choice of, well, government programs or cutting, they hang on to what they know, or what they have. but ultimately it's leading to a very dangerous path, i think, financially. >> well, i think that california has had a history of always spending more money it takes in. i think ronald reagan went through that big challenge, as you remember, when he became governor, he had to raise taxes, how to figure out how to make the severe cuts that he did. 10 years later, another republican governor had to raise taxes, went through the same problem. 10 years after that, pete wilson became governor, another republican, he had to raise taxes. 10 years later, i had to raise taxes. i hated it. arnold, how can you do that? you promised the people you wouldn't raise taxes. all of a sudden you are there with a $40 billion deficit because the economy took a dive and we had less revenues coming in. >> sean: even the car tax. >> exactly. it's a real clem and real dileml challenge. i was adamant about solving the financial problem of
